*~ A Star Without a Name ~*

When a baby is taken from the wet nurse

it easily forgets her

and starts eating solid food

Seeds feed awhile on ground

then lift up into the sun

So you should taste the filtered light

and work your way toward wisdom

with no personal covering

That's how you came here, like a star

without a name. Move across the night sky

with those anonymous lights

(Rumi-(Mathnawi III, 1284-1288 _
